Leadership: 14th Annual Outreach Resources of the Year

Resource of the Year: Leadership

Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory
By Tod Bolsinger (IVP Books)

This is my leadership resource of the year for clergy. Pastors have heard the terminology about leadership in the postmodern world: “trust,” “DNA,” “alignment,” “passion,” “team,” “credibility,” “adaptability,” etc. But Tod Bolsinger brings clarity and practicality as never before. He goes beyond skillsets to explain the interconnection of technical competence, adaptive capacity and relational congruence.

The chapters on relationships and resistance and personal stress and change are especially helpful. There are nuggets of insight throughout that are like trace samples leading to the mother lode of leadership transformation. You may have heard it before, but in this book you will finally get it!
